When we met Bob Sadler, he was driving a weather beaten old station wagon and had a young man with him to help him set up his electric piano. The young man had been in trouble down south and Sadler had "lead him to Jesus" and brought him along on a missionary tour of the Indian reservations in the Midwest and Canada in order to disciple him. I remember Bob played a roof raising version of, "Come and Dine", and gave warm hugs. I can hear the echoes of his songs in that old meeting hall even today. That week he gave his piano to a young lady who had none. When asked how he would manage without it, he said, "The Lord will provide." Bob Sadler was more concerned with gathering spare clothing for the needy children on the reservations.
I have since gone on to study literature and communication. I have read quite a few good books over the years, but I do not think I have ever encountered a more compelling narrative.
This book deserves to be widely read.

I met Robert Sadler when he was touring in Minnesota in the 70's (might have been at the same camp meeting as the other reviewer.) I absolutely fell in love with this old gentleman; he was beautiful and full of the love of God - in spite of the hardships of his life. I do remember "Come and Dine" very well, I think it may have been his signature song. Certainly no one could ever come close to singing it with the same heart and soul as Robert Sadler did:
"Come and dine the Master calleth, come and dine... you may feast at Jesus' table all the time! He who fed the multitudes, turned the water into wine... Come and dine the Master calleth, come and dine!"
Robert Sadler died a few years later. He was one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Yes, a movie of his life would be awesome if it could be done, but I don't know if any Hollywood director could adequately portray the depth of grace, the passion for God, the huge heart of forgiveness, the joy in sharing Jesus... How could they ever do justice to who this man truly was?
I highly recommend this book.
